Research Associate Scientist

Dr. Qiongyu Guo attended the Department of Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 1999, and got bachelor’s degree in 2004. Then she attended the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at the Case Western Reserve University, a top university in the United States. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2010. After that, she got her postdoctoral training in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University under the supervision of Prof. Jennifer Elisseeff, a famous professor in the field of tissue engineering. She researched the development of polymeric biomaterials in the field of translational medicine, which was applied to several biomedical research directions. And she got some results in the fields of implantable artificial cornea, degradable vascular scaffolds, memory nanomaterial, bone repair and cell regulation. She has authored 22 articles (SCI-E: 20)that have been cited more than 300 times. And In the past two years, 5 patent applications have been granted
